Can I get an old Nokia 8890 to work?

I have found my old phone! How can I get it to work on a pay-by-the-minute sort of plan? Looking for this Nokia 8890 as a backup phone for text and phone calls.

Canada won't shut off 2G GSM until December 2020.

Are there any other carriers that would support it?

If it isn’t unlocked already, it’s dead in the water because ATT purged all records from 2g phones.

t-mobile still has 2g until next year.
